Have a listen to this, man, if you haven't heard it already:The A.I. Dilemma
These dudes really know what they're talking about.
A.I. is not a fractional departmentalized "one field" machine learning algorithm anymore, it's a language-based centralized "main field" machine learning algorithm, drawing information (knowledge) from one single source instead of many (separated from one another). This is the paradigm. The danger. The conflict of interest. The model used by OpenAI (GPT) and Google (Bard) in their research.
This needs to be regulated by a centralized entity (a democratic organisation or state) that people are a part of and have a say in. Not managed freely and without control by corporate entities that have only one purpose in mind: to make "good" money, and not necessarily "good" choices. Then, we're fucked. 1984 and beyond. Orwell. And this is no fucking joke. This is real. This is happening now. This is what the search algorithms in Google and Bing Search will be based on. Continuously. Not what you put in, but what you are expected to put in. Is this what we want? Not being able to make our own choices in the future? No, I don't think so. And if more people would be able to understand this, for real, they would agree. At least, I hope so. This is why we should care. Why we need to come together. Why we need to slow this down.
But what do I know? I'm just in for the ride. To see it all come crashing down… like a big fat A.I. bride rolling down Main Street on her old rusty bike with a Rig Rat 2.0 smile on her face and a frown – indicating her mathematical confusion in computing whether or not she's "feeling" happy or sad.
